5:21 pm
we know there were at least four other people reported as trauma cases that were transported and three others that were transported as nontrauma patients. if i'm doing the math, that's giving me a total, including fatality, of 10 at this point, but initial reports were there were as many as 15. we're still trying to gather information. information is early. everyone has been rescued from the bus at this point. it looks like maryland state police is conducting the investigation. the tow truck has arrived on the scene and they're bang the cleanup. they have very heavy traffic. this is where 270 converges as you get on to the capital beltway. expect delays as the investigation continues, as we continue to gather information. we'll keep you updated. back to you. >> thank you, reporting live

other persons were taken off the bus. they have a mass casualty situation. multiple ambulances. new all of the casualties have left the scene except for the person who is diseased. firefighters are looking around to make sure someone wasn't thrown from the wreckage as it rolled down the hill. it appears they've accounted for everyone. maryland state police do have several roads blocked in the area. our traffic reporter has been diligent telling which ones are closed. the area is gridlocked. 270 being one of the main arteries from washington towards the frederick area. at this point still early on, not having gotten any confirmed information on exactly how many people were on the bus, it was a smaller style charter bus, not one of the big motor coaches you would normally think of. as you can see, the road is
